I just made an order on the BGG marketplace, and I had to update my display name from Asmor to Ian Toltz. Otherwise, the order was going to be addressed to "Asmor", which perhaps wouldn't be a problem but all the same...

I prefer to be addressed online as Asmor, and don't really like having my real name displayed next to all of my posts. I don't mind people knowing my name, it just feels weird to be called "Ian" on an online forum, and invariably with my name right there people always will use it when they address me directly.

This could be solved nicely if there was a separate field for "Display name", or even just an option to not show anything besides your account name.

I put my real name in the top address line field, so that it's there when I order through the Marketplace, but not displayed above my avatar.
